This pattern was based on the distinctive camouflage of the British Army which was developed by the Army Personnel Research Establishment in Farnborough. The first trial uniform made of ‘DPM’ fabric was issued in 1969, but the cut was based on an olive drab uniform produced in 1960; hence it was called ‘pattern 1960 DPM’. The maharishi version also incorporates elements from the ‘Bonsai Forest’ DPM.
